    Last week my wife was doing some research for her work and went to a website that was based in Japan. The popup box said she need to download specific fonts to view the site. She thought that since it was from MS, it must be OK, right? :eek:

    Now when she tries her desktop publishing program, it locks up if she should happen to click on one of these fonts. I know the easy answer is don't click on those fonts, but since then I've noticed that Photoshop and Word seem to take a moment longer when changing fonts. Doing a search, I can isolate the fonts that were downloaded. Will simply deleting these fonts solve the problem, or has something entwined itself in her PC? She is running XP Home.

    Thanks,
    Steve

    Steve, Its hard to say. I would assume that deleting the fonts would get rid of the problems your having. But i would check your add/remove programs in the control panel to make sure that nothing else has been installed (that you don't recognise) when she downloaded the fonts and check what else is within the folder of where the fonts are downloaded to. To be overly cautious post back any programs that are in your add/remove that your not sure about. You should also wait to see what others think before changing anything

    There is nothing in the add/remove programs that I don't know what it is, so I'll try deleting the fonts to see if that helps.
